As I’ve mentioned in my previous blog, women are extremely underrepresented in sports media. How can we change this in order for talented female athletes to get the recognition they deserve?
This video talks about how Twitter could be a useful tool for female athletes to promote their image as an athlete. One prime example is Angela Ruggiero, a female hockey player, who uses twitter to promote her athletic career. Click here to view her twitter page. Should other female athletes follow in Ruggiero’s footsteps in order to receive more media coverage? If all women promoted themselves via social media would would there be less of a gender gap in sports media coverage?
